a light shadow on the lighter curtains, four eyes peep near corner
of windows with mahahony frame,
flat nose imprints on the glass clearing the mist.
a familiar face with name amiss.
push the chair arch the back
tilt the head till it snaps from the neck
an inch closing , the distance shortening, brows creasing, a sudden recognition, sharp turn, jump stand hasten run,
step out of the door, take a sharp left,
cling on to the wall with bated breath
collect and count upside down
peak to your right let the search begin
soiled sand under the porch with some zebra crossing.
